  • Download a big file in Linux

    I want to download a big file, but don't want to use my full network bandwidth.
    Is there any way to limit the download speed in Linux.

    I don't know whether such kind of option available in Linux or not, as my understanding of Linux is same as monkey knowing ginger taste. However, one thing I would like to suggest, if you limit the download speed anyhow, then it will take more time to download entire file and it may consume same or more bandwidth. So if you are afraid that big file will consume your entire allocated bandwidth, then better way you upgrade your package to the next level.

      Linux has wget command to download the files to the server.
      You can use option "wget --limit -rate=500K" to limit to the download speed to 500k.

          you can use "wget -b" to put the download in background.
          and use wget-log to check the status of download.
